Then, a matter of judgement, he continued by enumerating great truths or clichés when asked why the team always plays better in the return games. Which, by the way, is also true for Ferencváros this year
– Soccer is a fighting game, we always want to win, to do our best. We don’t always manage to get the most out of ourselves, but we try to avoid all mistakes during the matches. By the second matches, we always get to know the opponent better, maybe that’s why we play better in these matches. But the opponent is not idle either, they know us better by now, so you have to pay close attention to every detail. I’m really looking forward to the match, it will be an interesting meeting. I am just a coach, the team has achieved the success of the past years with a lot of work. The language of soccer is common, there is a lot of practice, struggle, and work in our results. We always try to do our best, this is the secret of success – reflected Gurbanov.
To crown his speech, Gurbanov praised Stanislav Cherchesov.
“We respect him deeply.” He is a good person, and like all people who work hard at a high level, he deserves respect.
It was then mentioned that two of Qarabag’s players may return from suspension, but two of their injuries have not yet recovered. The Azeri coach is happy with the former, less so with the latter, but he also lives with the fact that such situations occur in football.
Gurban Gurbanov is a suggestive individual, a proven good coach. He has been in charge of Qarabag for fourteen years, and in the last eight years he has led his team to the main table of the European series. We wish him to succeed this year as well, just not in the Champions League.
